R.E.M. Green“Orange Crush” è la traccia numero 7 di “Green”, sesto album del gruppo “R.E.M.”. Uscito nel 1988, questa canzone è il secondo singolo estratto dall’album. I R.E.M. sono stati un gruppo rock statunitense attivo dal 1980 al 2011. Formatosi ad Athens(Georgia) il 5 aprile 1980, la sigla R.E.M. è l’acronimo di “rapid eye movement”, la fase del sonno in cui si sogna. “Orange Crush” divenne il più grande successo del gruppo fino a quel momento, superato appena due anni dopo da “Losing My Religion”. La band era composta da Michael Stipe(voce), Peter Buck(chitarra), Mike Mills(basso) e Bill Berry(batteria).

Testo
(chorus 1)
Follow me, don’t follow me
I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush
Collar me, don’t collar me
I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush
We are agents of the free
I’ve had my fun and now it’s time to
Serve your conscience overseas(over me, not over me)
Coming in fast, over me

(repeat chorus 1)

(chorus 2)
High on the roof,
Thin the blood,
Another one climbs on the waves tonight,
Comin’ in, you’re home

We’d circle and we’d circle and we’d circle to stop and consider and
Centered on the pavement stacked up all the trucks jacked up and
Our wheels in slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county
Hell any county it’s just like heaven here and I was remembering and I
Was just in a different county and all then this whirlybird that I
Headed for I had my goggles pulled off I knew it all I knew every back
Road and every truck stop

(repeat chorus 1)

(repeat chorus 2 2x)
